Update: This competition is now closed.
As you’ve seen from my recent posts, I’ve been encouraging Plant Geeks to get gardening in autumn! It’s the perfect time of year to get gardening – ideal for planting bulbs and winter edibles, and you can even save water because the soil doesn’t dry out like it does in summer.
In case you needed anymore incentive than that, I’m giving you the chance to win a £500 prize when you create your own autumn container! Read on to find out what you could win, and how you could win it…

How will we pick the winner?
The winner will be adjudicated by Mr Plant Geek, based on the creativity of the container! Make sure your container is fun, unique and well put together. You must appear in your photo with your container, or your entry will not be counted. Please only send ONE image of yourself with ONE container – make sure it’s your best one, as it’s the only entry you’ll have! Repeat and multiple entries will not be counted – only the first entry will be accepted.
We will feature the winner on mrplantgeek.com, along with the runners up, and our highly commended entries.
